A former Labour MEP for the South East, Peter Skinner, is behind bars tonight after being jailed for four years for fraudulently claiming expenses of more than £100,000.
Skinner had been a Euro-MP for more than 20 years. The judge said the former politician had shown "huge greed ... no remorse .. and tried to blame others" for his web of deceit, and that in doing so, he had destroyed his own reputation and damaged politics too. John Ryall sent this report from Southwark Crown Court.
Some of the footage is from the European Parliament.
